Makeup guru Bobbi Brown may have left her eponymous beauty brand, but her legacy of timeless and iconic Bobbi Brown products lives on. What we’ve always loved about it is the ethos of celebrating beauty and confidence in one’s skin without being apologetic about dolling up.
That partially explains why its iconic products are all about enhancing your skin in its natural glory; it’s a philosophy that celebrates simplicity over extravagance and the understated over the excessive. Just basic, great quality products to give you the best-looking skin.
Here, we’ve curated 5 iconic Bobbi Brown products you need to own on top of the previous 5 best Bobbi Brown beauty products we’ve already recommended. These items have withstood the test of time and remained firmly on the best-selling list.
What’s more, we’re running an instagram contest during KL fashion week where a beauty makeover and lipstick by Bobbi Brown is up for grabs. Head over to KL Fashion Week 2017 giveaway page for more details.

Eyeliner has become a main staple in any girl’s makeup bag. Whether you’re a pencil liner or liquid liner kind of girl, this iconic Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner from Bobbi Brown is one to have. The rich and buttery pigmentation of this gel eyeliner makes it a winner in (and on) everybody’s eyes, and glides on smoothly to create the perfect look.
The Pot Rouge is a classic product from Bobbi Brown much loved for its versatility. This understated light scarlet hue can be used on both the lips and cheek — perfect for days when you want a natural look and a lip colour to match your blusher without overthinking it. Powder Pink seems to be the crowd favourite for giving skin that natural flush.
None of us are perfect, and thankfully we have tools to help us out on days when our skin is less than stellar. This Creamy Concealer Kit is one of those, which come especially handy when you have one palette of cream concealer, and the other a smooth, satiny powder to set your concealer with. What makes this product different is its yellow-base, which has colour-correcting properties to cover your dark circles naturally. It also contains emollients to go on smoothly under the eyes;no patchiness and amplifying of lines.
This is the lipstick the brand names “the bestseller that started it all” — and we can’t disagree. Quite simply named Lip Color, this is Bobbi Brown’s first lipstick formula, catching the hearts of many with its semi-matte finish and pigmented colour. It’s a great formula as well because it’s moisturising on the lips and fairly long-lasting. There’s a variety of colours available, but we’d pick a #MLBB — an acronym which stands for ‘my lips but better’ — a shade to enhance your natural lip colour.
The story of how the Shimmer Brick Compact was conceived is just like how many of humanity’s greatest inventions came about — by accident. According to an interview with Bobbi Brown herself, she dusted shimmery eye shadow onto models’ cheeks for a runway show. The idea stuck and the Shimmer Brick Compact was created, albeit in more cheek-friendly colours. Go for renditions like this one in Bronze to give your skin a healthy, bronzy look.
